The League One table this evening

View from the press box

They’ve done it, four in a row for the first time since 2019 and that late run they put together to get back up the League Two table.

Some late pressure from Doncaster as the visitors pressed on but it’s the first clean sheet since Hull away in early February.

The gap to the play-offs keeps getting smaller...

76 mins: Deadlock broken!

He hit the post in the first half but he’s made no mistake this time as Daniel Harvie cuts in from the left flank onto his right foot, unleashes a fierce effort which looks like it has taken a deflection through to Jones who is left with no chance!

Dons in front!

67 mins: Dons make two changes

Ethan Laird and Cameron Jerome will come on for the final 22 minutes, replacing Matthew Sorinola and Andrew Surman.

65 mins: Still nothing to separate the sides

It feels like it has 0-0 written all over it, this one. Neither side really doing much in the attacking third, Dons are still with the best chances with Grigg getting another half-chance on target from O’Riley’s cross.

Doncaster’s best effort since Lokilo’s double chance has come from a John Bostock free-kick which was high and wide.

No signs of any changes from the bench forthcoming as yet.

53 mins: Lokilo with two bites of the cherry

Doncaster with a chance, O’Riley gives it away but Lokilo’s first effort is blocked by Darling, the second is well over the bar.

Back underway at Stadium MK, and within seconds of the restart Thompson drives forwards into the box and forces another save from Jones to tip over the bar.

Half time: MK Dons 0-0 Doncaster Rovers

An interesting half, but a frustrating one too for Dons. The better chances, Grigg and Harvie all coming close and drawing saves from Louis Jones, but it will be the Scott Fraser substitution after 29 minutes which will raise the most eyebrows - a tactical decision it would seem rather than a injury-based one.

39 mins: Off the post!

Best chance of the game for MK Dons as Daniel Harvie cuts in from the right and hits it on his left, Jones gets a finger tip to it and it hits the post, rolls along the line towards Grigg but Jones recovers to put it out for a corner. Grigg gets another sniff from the set-piece and the keeper again denies him.

29 mins: Blow for Dons as Fraser comes off

Scott Fraser will have to come off after 29 minutes here replaced by Louis Thompson and it doesn’t look for injury... he’s furious as he launches his water bottle across the empty stand.

Dons are starting to get on top again with some efforts on goal from Grigg, who forces a good save from keeper Jones, while Zak Jules has skidded a shot just wide.

20 mins: More balance to the game

MK Dons had control of the opening 10 minutes or so, but Doncaster have come into it somewhat in the last 10. Still no real efforts on goal to speak of, Surman’s effort hitting two on the edge of the box before falling to a Doncaster leg to hoof clear.

10 mins: A decent opening for Dons

After a scrappy start to the game, Dons have found their feet and are on top of this one in the first 10 minutes. Sorinola and Fraser have been heavily involved, McEachran is seeing a lot of the ball too. No real chances at either end but a solid base to start with for the home side.

Doncaster get us underway.
